Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old

Islay

 

Lightly peated barley and pure spring water that flows underground away from the peaty moorlands, helps to explain the gentle nature of this Islay scotch. Matured in Bourbon and Sherry casks this delicious dram is a value for its top quality. Bunnahabhain (meaning rivermouth) is named for its location close to the Margadale River on the Northern shore of the Island.

Nose:  Fresh sea air, bananas and toffee.

Body:  Medium body.

Palate:  Hint of fruitiness, malt nuttiness and coffee, subtle peat with a wisp of smoke.

Awards:  SFWSC 2010 Silver Medal

SUGGESTED CHOCOLATE PAIRINGS

Chuao - Java and Gianduja 

Coffee notes of the malt are enhanced with both chocolates.  Java is like pure espresso, while Gianduja brings out more sweetness and vanilla flavor. Enjoy one of the best chocolate to whisky matches of our entire collection. 

 

SUGGESTED CIGAR PAIRING  

Davidoff Millenium Blend

Noted for its impeccable quality and fullness of flavor, the Millenium Blend has the deep earthy and mocha-coffee flavors that match the chocolate and single malt quite well.
